I know GPO is very flexible and can be quite realistic... I've heard and personally experienced great things with it so far (and even upgraded to the full GPO after getting the Finale version!). With the busy-ness of the season, I had not yet really given it a workout, so I decided to do a few pages of an orchestral score last night, and do NOTHING interpretation-wise but put in the markings that were in the score...
I'll not divulge the piece, but if I can muster the time to continue working on it in my spare time, I'll post it... the results were nothing short of staggering
now... I gotta save the $$ for GPO advanced (Oh, Gary, how "early" in 2006 is "early'?)
The only non-Finale 2006 tweaking I did on this was to create an expression that turns on the alternating up and downbows, a feature that is not yet supported by Human Playback.
If there is sufficient interest, I'll post updates as I work on this ... if not, I'll just give y'all the final product (which will be all GPO except for the organ samples... I'm kinda picky about those, and they are the only thing in GPO that I think doesn't quite cut it)
